White Hart House is an historic Grade II listed holiday house set in the heart of the Burford. Very much an indulgent holiday home with contemporary decor, spacious living spaces and a fabulous kitchen this is an ideal home to get-together and all within a stone's throw of the centre of Burford. Formerly a Coaching Inn, this hidden gem sits on a small lane with cafes, pubs and shops in one direction, with the beautiful Windrush Valley in the other - it offers a total Cotswolds' experience.

Burford is possibly one of the most famous of the Cotswolds' locations. With its medieval bridge, old stone houses and attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages, Burford is justifiably one of the most picturesque towns in England. Often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds', the town was originally a fortified Anglo-Saxon ford which later grew to be an important regional crossroads and wealthy wool town.
The 16th century Tolsey building, once the meeting place for medieval merchants, now houses The Tolsey Museum, a delightful local museum illustrating the town's social and industrial past. The fine church is a real gem with many interesting memorials charting some of Burford's great families. There is also the signature, on the baptisimal font, of Antony Sedley, one of the Levellers besieged in the church in 1649 - three of the ringleaders were executed by Oliver Cromwell's men in the churchyard. History awaits!
With little changing over the centuries, Burford is now very popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping and antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. It is an ideal base for visiting The Cotswolds area as it is within easy driving distance of popular attractions such as Blenheim Palace, Sudley Castle, Warwick Castle and several National Trust Houses and Gardens. Bourton on the Water, Bibury, Cirencester and Stow on the Wold are all with 25 minutes from the property.
Places to eat include the world famous Huffkins Tea Rooms, The Bay Tree and Lamb pubs which serve good food, along with the The Angel another good restaurant. There is even a very good curry house!
"Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at WHH this weekend. Everybody thought it was excellent and possibly the best place we'd ever stayed in. We found the house had everything we needed and the location was superb and so convenient for all that Burford has to offer! Hopefully we left the place in as good a state as we found it in."Mr S 2017-09-23
